Nani was the winner of best 48MVP Song 2012

Heart & Soul Photography sponsored a photoshoot for the winner of the ‘Best Song’ award at the 48 Hour Music Video Project Johannesburg 2012. Lovely NaNi won it for her song titled ‘Nomalanga’.

We had a lot of fun in studio with this shoot – Nani wanted to go for a ‘Billy Holliday’ type look, so i mostly went with a very vintage, black and white look when editing the pics, and I am absolutely in love with the result!

The Lovely Trio Pin-Up Shoot | Miss Oh, Bronwyn & Cashe | Johannesburg PinUp Photographer

I recently had the absolute pleasure of photographing three very gorgeous woman, Pin-Up style,  in a most stunning lingerie boutique situated on 44 Stanley in Johannesburg, South Africa.  It was a day of stunning bodies, all different shapes and just celebrating their beauty as women. These are my favourite type of shoots, for many reasons.

I asked Cashe ( Bettie Flash) to write a little insert  from her point of view, on what this Pin-Up photo shoot meant to her, what follows are her words:

Who said three’s a crowd?

I often Google pictures of the gorgeous Pin-Up and burlesque ladies from way back when, and more often than not there are very few where the gorgeous ladies are together.

So when I was asked to participate in a trio pin up shoot, I jumped (very gracefully naturally) at the chance.  It was a lot easier to agree to a trio shoot when the fabulous burlesque performer; Oh Miss Oh wanted in on the action as well.  As always; the incredible Bronwyn Stewart was on hand to work her photographic magic on three very different ladies crammed into one awesome lingerie shop in Milpark.

The setting was perfect, we were using Mechant & Gentil as a location, and there is really something about being surrounded by stunning lingerie that brings out the sensual goddess within, hair and make-up done by a professional also helps!

When you are being photographed with two other gorgeous women; two women you haven’t actually met in person before; there is a certain nervousness that takes over that you cannot let show on the photos.  Fortunately Bronwyn Stewart is a master at helping her models feel at ease, it is very easy to feel so comfortable wearing very little when Bronwyn is behind a camera; she has a way with words, poses and energy that allows a girl with curves to feel like the sexiest creature in the room.  And there were three of us.

With myself, Miss Oh and Bronwyn Ruth Williams made up and ready for our shoot, it was surely a challenge to get all of us positioned and posed beautifully, while taking into consideration that each of us have very different body types and personalities.  Bronwyn S just has a way of bringing our personalities out without much effort either; all while having the artistic vision to capture some incredible shots of the three of us!

I absolutely adore the Pin-Up pictures of the three of us; the edgy and beautiful way that they were captured shows a group of ladies who have known each other for years; even though it was only for a few hours.

Bronwyn S allowed us to bring our ideas to the table and worked with what we had envisioned for the shoot in ways that neither of us could have imagined.  It made me wonder that if three almost strangers could produce photos of this nature, I could only imagine what a group of friends could produce. 

I am no professional model; I am definitely not a skinny girl and I am not the type of girl who will flaunt my mom curves, thanks to Bronwyn S though; I am very proud of my body and of any beautiful woman who is willing to flaunt her best side.  I have said it before and will say it again, I would definitely recommend a pin up shoot with Bronwyn Stewart – she is a lady who nails pin up poses to help you get into them; she knows exactly how to direct you into the most flattering positions and is more patient with her clients than most people I know.

So I would like to thank Bronwyn once again for helping me realize that I am more than just a mom; more than just a girlfriend or just an employee –  I am a woman and a pretty sassy one at that and without Bronwyn I wouldn’t have seen that at all!
